4. San Diego

Who wouldn't want to live close to miles of beaches amidst the near-perfect climate of San Diego? This ideally located city with tons of outdoor amenities is a great place to live, but it will stretch and probably break the average budget.

Be prepared to encounter housing costs that exceed the national average by 138%. Costs for transportation are also five times higher in San Diego than in most other US cities.
